8 actors who should star in Superman: Legacy (and who they should play)

A film by James Gunn Superman: Legacy is now one of the most anticipated comic book movies in the world. Since it’s the first film in Gunn’s new DC universe, many fans are wondering what to expect in this superhero blockbuster.

Namely, they wonder who will play the new Superman in this film, along with his friends and opponents. Since the casting of the film is still in progress, here is the list of actors who are expected to appear Superman: Legacy and who they should play.

Wolfgang Novogratz as Clark Kent/Superman

This young rising actor, who starred alongside Natalie Dyer in Yes, God, yes, seems to be the latest fan favorite to play the Man of Steel, and it’s easy to see why. Novogratz bears a striking resemblance to Henry Cavill and Christopher Reeve, and has brought the charm and charisma needed to play the blue scout on screen, making him well suited to play the young Superman in Gunn’s new origin story.

Camila Mendes as Lois Lane

True to Superman’s origins, Gunn’s film will show Clark Kent in his early days at the Daily Planet working with Lois Lane. Since the latter is an integral part of the hero’s life, finding the real Lois is just as important as finding the real Superman.

Based on her performance as Veronica in the hit series RiverdaleCamila Mendes can easily bring her character’s confidence, intelligence and determination to play the Lois that fans of the strong and courageous reporter know and love.

Robert Downey Jr. like Lex Luthor

Although Robert Downey Jr. known for his portrayal of the brilliant but tormented hero Iron Man, Lex Luthor wouldn’t be too difficult to play Tony Stark.

Both are intelligent but narcissistic billionaires with daddy issues and a not-so-smooth past. RDJ’s recently shaved head shows that he may have the “Luthor look,” but his charm and wit may help him create a villain that can surpass Gene Hackman’s divisive but iconic iteration of the character.

Ralph Fiennes as Brainiac

For years, fans have been dying to see Superman fight the Collector of Worlds in theaters, when he was actually supposed to appear in Henry Cavill’s canceled sequel Man of Steel. But there’s a chance that Brainiac will appear in Gunn’s new vision of Superman, and if anyone should play the Terror of Kandor, it’s Ralph Fiennes.

This adored actor is no stranger to playing iconic villains, having famously portrayed Amon Göth (Schindler’s List), Francis Dolarhyde (red dragon), Hades (Clash of the titans), Lord Voldemort (Harry Potter franchise), and Chef Slowik (Menu). So adding the role of Brainiac to his illustrious filmography should be an easy task for him.

Rupert Grint as Jimmy Olsen

This wouldn’t be the first time he played the best friend of a beloved superhero. Rupert Grint is widely known for his role as Ron Weasley in the film Harry Potter films, but has since expanded his acting skills in a number of projects. Additionally, he has shown remarkable comic timing with his roles in Servant and Knock on the cabin. For these reasons, he could bring something new to Jimmy Olsen’s character by making him a wise but lovable partner to Lois and Clark.

Brendan Fraser as Jonathan Kent

Brendan Fraser actually auditioned to play the Man of Steel in the canceled JJ Abrams film, Superman: Flyover. Although the Oscar-winning actor has no regrets about losing this sought-after role, his interpretation of Kal-El’s adoptive father in the DC Universe could still make up for this missed opportunity.

Fraser can certainly convey Pa Kent’s kind and wise presence that has guided Clark Kent time and time again to become Earth’s greatest hero.

Winona Ryder as Martha Kent

Another critically acclaimed actor making a stellar comeback, Winona Ryder could undoubtedly nail the role of Superman’s concerned but loving mother just as she did in Stranger Things.

With the latter series coming to an end soon, Ryder may have time to jump into the superhero genre. Let’s hope that if Ryder gets the chance to play Martha Kent in Gunn’s film, she gets enough screen time to give a well-rounded performance that deserves her talent.

Jason Alexander as Perry White

It’s easy to see Jason Alexander in the comics since his icon Seinfeld George Costanza’s character showed great love for Superman. Based on his performance as the latter, it’s also not hard to imagine him playing Clark Kent’s tough and cantankerous boss, Perry White.

Alexander can dominate any scene using his anxiety-induced rage and the comedic skill he unleashes Seinfeld. Bringing this energy to Perry White’s performance can make him a hilarious role model on par with JK Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson.
